Participate in the Workplace Legislation Review

Complete the Employment Standards Code Review Survey

Email the review your thoughts on the Labour Relations Code


The provincial government has invited Albertans to participate in a review of the province’s labour legislation with a stated goal of ensuring fair and family-friendly workplaces.

How to Participate

An important part of this review process is an online survey the government has posted to hear Albertan’s views on specific parts to the Employment Standards Code. The government is also accepting written submissions on the Labour Relations Code by email.

The Employment Standards Code sets out the basic workplace rights and standards by which basic workplace rights and standards are given to for non-unionized workers, so it is important that as many worker-friendly voices as possible are heard through this review survey.

Email the review with your thoughts on the Labour Relations Code


Alberta has some of the oldest workplace legislation in Canada. Both the Employment Standards Code and Labour Relations Code have not been significantly updated since 1988.

The public is invited to provide their views and input on Alberta’s workplace laws until April 18, 2017. Albertans can find more information about the review at:

This is our opportunity to raise the floor for all Albertans, and to ensure Alberta has modern, progressive labour laws, that reflect the changing nature of work and family life which has occured over the last 30 years.
